LIFE_CYCLE-DIGEST(7SSL) OpenSSL LIFE_CYCLE-DIGEST(7SSL)

NAME

life_cycle-digest - The digest algorithm life-cycle

DESCRIPTION

All message digests (MDs) go through a number of stages in their life-cycle:
start
This state represents the MD before it has been allocated. It is the starting state for any life-cycle transitions.
newed
This state represents the MD after it has been allocated.
initialised
This state represents the MD when it is set up and capable of processing input.
updated
This state represents the MD when it is set up and capable of processing additional input or generating output.
finaled
This state represents the MD when it has generated output.
freed
This state is entered when the MD is freed. It is the terminal state for all life-cycle transitions.

State Transition Diagram

The usual life-cycle of a MD is illustrated: +-------------------+ | start | +-------------------+ | | EVP_MD_CTX_new v +-------------------+ EVP_MD_CTX_reset | newed | <------------------------------+ +-------------------+ | | | | EVP_DigestInit | v | +-------------------+ | +--> | initialised | <+ EVP_DigestInit | | +-------------------+ | | | | | EVP_DigestUpdate | | | EVP_DigestUpdate | +------------------+ | | v | v | | | +------------------------------------------------+ | EVP_DigestInit | | updated | --+ | +------------------------------------------------+ | | | | | | | EVP_DigestFinal | EVP_DigestFinalXOF | | v v | | +------------------------------------------------+ | +--- | finaled | --+ +------------------------------------------------+ | | EVP_MD_CTX_free v +-------------------+ | freed | +-------------------+

Formal State Transitions

This section defines all of the legal state transitions. This is the canonical list. Function Call --------------------- Current State ---------------------- start newed initialised updated finaled freed EVP_MD_CTX_new newed EVP_DigestInit initialised initialised initialised initialised EVP_DigestUpdate updated updated EVP_DigestFinal finaled EVP_DigestFinalXOF finaled EVP_MD_CTX_free freed freed freed freed freed EVP_MD_CTX_reset newed newed newed newed EVP_MD_CTX_get_params newed initialised updated EVP_MD_CTX_set_params newed initialised updated EVP_MD_CTX_gettable_params newed initialised updated EVP_MD_CTX_settable_params newed initialised updated

NOTES

At some point the EVP layer will begin enforcing the transitions described herein.
